It Should Have Been Me composed by Lee Dengler. For Choral (SATB). Glory Sound. 8 pages. Glory Sound #A7742. Published by Glory Sound (HL.35011155).
Juxtaposing a contemporary styled lyric with the ancient echoes of the “Kyrie,” Lee Dengler has created an anthem of singular impact and scope. The poignant text ponders Jesus' innocence, asks difficult questions, and encourages repentance and humility. Particularly meaningful during the Lenten season, this tender and memorable anthem may be used anytime the focus is on God's grace. An alternate English text is provided for the Kyrie if desired. “It Should Have Been Me” is intimate and expressive and is sure to stir both listener and singer alike.
